This week our talented Photochoppers were to lead us on a magical tour through a Las Vegas festooned with Woot.com!'s dark and disturbing influences by Showing us your ideas for a Woot Casino. Although Las Wootvas is all about winning and losing, at times we find ourselves at an impasse- on the horns of a dilemma, facing a Hobson's choice, with the only side being the downside if we selected one chop over another of equally high quality. So, we bailed. We asked Jason if we could award a tie for first place, and without even checking with Dave, as far as we know, he agreed! Accordingly, because the two chops we felt to be the best really had little to separate them, we awarded first place to both.

First Place - $100 (tie)
mwiseman - TooNeon

Not just a casino, but a casino resort! Now maybe we can all see those winning signs they said they were going to put up after that sign contest.

First Place - $100 (tie)
rascal514 - Woot Casino

Really, can't you see this casino in your mind's eye, right in there among the other great casinos of Las Vegas- The giant Best Buy BentoBox casino, the Sam's Gentlemen's Club (members only, of course), the Yahoo! Sellout Dollar Slots, and, of course, eBet, where everyone stays in their hotel rooms and submits bets over the wireless internet.


Second Place - $50
plinth - Woot!netian Drink Menu

Plinth fortunately gave us a glimpse into the upscale Vegas that he finds each time the Plinth.com convention rolls into town.


Third Place - $20
CabooseGT - One Game, One Day

This, this is how the woot casino plans to become a tax loss for the Woot investors' financial needs. One slot, each day. Click the pic for a bigger jackpot.


Honorable Mentions
FedUpOldHag - Woot Buffet

Boy, what a crappy selection in this buffet- there isn't even any ThunderPanda in Peanut Sauce.


cicada - Potty Slots
Uh, excuse us for a moment...

I hope we all appreciate what a brave woman Shan was to allow this one to be redisplayed!

Speaking of a festive Brave Woman...


Monkey Prize
rascal514 - Welcome to Woot! Vegas

Yep, from the sublime to the ridiculous, rascal514 started out flush on his trip to Vegas, only to end up here, in the gutter, wet, dank, without that $100 we just gave him (lost it to the Woot! slot machine) and corrupted by the stain of failure slowly spreading from that matted, piebald monkey, his only remaining companion.


Money winners, please email your Paypal info to jtoon@woot.com. Monkey Prize winner, please email your shipping address to jtoon@woot.com. Honorable Mentioneers may use coupon code HONMEN-FS for free shipping on a future order. Then, when the code doesn't work, you can try emailing service@woot.com and if you're pleasant about it, they'll usually credit you for the code. Until next time, remember, whatever you won in Vegas, stays in Carrollton, until the next corporate quarter rolls around, at least.

What, this is bullshoot!

You call that a photochop, my grandma could do better than that in MSPaint, and a tie for first place, what do we just want to give away money for mediocore attemps?

I question the judgeing, they must just be throwing darts at a spinning wheel or something, for christ sake the Honerable mentions were better than the prize winners.

Heres a big ole F-U to the judges..

After a few failed attempts at these contests that would get lost amongst the dozens of pages of submissions, I gave up entering. My time and skills were not near of the standard that others had set. I check the winners regularly just to see what's out there...but where have a lot of the greats gone (namely mnemeth)? And what has lead to the decrease in entries?

Nice job, winners! Thanks for the 2nd place - which means my streak of being totally ignored has come to an end! There's hope for it to start in the next contest, though!
